Now, I have a couple of questions. How long have you had the cat piss absorbent in your tank? How it it doing? How are the plants doing?
HAHAHAHA.... Well, we did some sample analysis of the florite vs. laterite vs. 'piss absorbent'.
IT comes out higher in iron, magnesium, and other good things (I can send you the results if you REALLY like reading that sort of thing), and it came out lower in copper and other undesireables. Price is a no brainer as the KL is only 1.99/lbs.
The plants are growing well, I have to prune about every two weeks, but Im not adding any other ferts besides light and CO2. I feel once I get better light and do some fert sticks, I should see a vast improvement.
The only downside I have noticed is that the KL left a film on the surface for about 4 weeks. Through waterchanges and some skimming, I got rid ot that, though.
The water quality stays about perfect, great PH, GH/KH, etc. The only filtration I have is an oceanclear with 250sq yard cartidge pushed by a little giant 850gph....
Thanks for the info in the lights. I see the same principles apply to plants as corals, but with the exception that there is a limit to the amount...
I also have two 175 balasts, but Ill need bulbs. That would put me right at 4.5Wpg. better idea? The heat is a non issue since the canopy used to house 1100W for my reef system before I moved to hell (Memphis).
Tank stays around 75.
Thanks or the help, and any other comments are still welcome.
